India setting agenda for G-20:
Since India is holding the presidency of the group, it is also setting an agenda for the wellbeing of the world at large. Needless to say whilst G20 priorities are in the process of being firmed up and a lot of them would come up as the talks go on, India is showing a path with focus on inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth. Apart from women’s empowerment and digital public infrastructure and tech-enabled development, India would also be trying to bring issues related to health, agriculture and education. In addition to skill-mapping, culture and tourism the host nation will also pay huge attention to issues like climate financing, circular economy and global food security.
